Reflection: Intrinsic Motivation Teacher Conferences and Writing Our Good Copies - Section 3: Peer Editing and Conferencing


One of the great aspects in working with the Master Teacher Project is that I have the opportunity to work with a coach.  When she was reviewing the lesson she told me that I had shown a great deal of how I motivate my student extrinsically but nothing about intrinsic motivation for my students.  My extrinsic motivation was solely based on what scores my students would receive on their rubric, and I really had to think about how I could intrinsically motivate my young students.  I really had to think about this and it wasn't until I started teaching my next writing unit that I seemed to "catch on" to what my coach meant.  Take a look at my reflection video to see what I've learned.
